I have no clue on how to do such a thing, but I think AvE on YouTube has done something similar in one of his videos for a different drill brand. Worst case scenario is you can buy knock-off batteries on Amazon for cheap (looks like they start at $18). I have some knock-offs for my Craftsman C3 and love them, but YMMV greatly.

If you’re asking about wiring directly to the AC, that would be very dangerous. The first thing to consider is if you can replace the battery. Since it’s an older model, that may not be an option. Failing that, you should be able to replace the batteries themselves.

Or, get a new drill. What’s better than bringing home a shiny new cordless drill?

You would need an electronic device to change the 110volt alternating current from the wall outlet to 14.4 v direct current that the drill motor uses. Even though some may know how to make one of those, it would be better to just replace the batteries as mentioned above.

Just get a corded drill at HF for $30. Don’t mess around trying to wire a 14.4V DC motor to AC.

You can get replacements for the battery

https://www.amazon.ca/Shentec-Replacement-Compatible-130224010-130224011/dp/B0787THGVW/ref=asc_df_B0787THGVW/?tag=googleshopc0c-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=292924016787&hvpos=1o3&hvnetw=g&hvrand=3923873896157208842&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9000684&hvtargid=pla-525736128161&psc=1

This makes no sense at all, but that battery is not listed on the US Amazon site. However, there are replacements under different names. I’m sure they’re all made in the same factory in China.

What makes no sense? His namesake doesn’t automatically mean he lives in the states if that’s what you’re implying about linking to the Canadian site?

Well, this is certainly starting out as a day full of strife. First, if you go look in the “Where are we all from ??” thread, you will see that he is indeed from Oregon. I took the time to do that so I wouldn’t sound like an idiot.

And, no, that’s not what “makes no sense” referred to, but I’m tired of explaining things so I’ll just let it go.

What makes no sense? The fact that you can get the battery, or that there are Amazon sites you can order from that exist outside the US?

I take my batteries to the battery store and they open them spotweld in new, cost about 1/2 of the factory replacement. I also got a little more amp hour.

Battery packs should be available, regardless of age. But if you really want to just have it plug in, all you would need to do is find a 14.4v DC wall adapter that can provide enough current, cut the plug off the end and wire it up to where the battery terminals hookup.

Cheers,
Brad

Right now, what makes no sense is why a simple exclamation has been so misunderstood and questioned. Time to move on folks…lol.
